TPEM has signed MoUs with leading CPOs 


Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd. (TPEM) recently signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with leading charging point operators (CPOs) such as Charge Zone, Glida, Statiq, and Zeon. The partnership aims to strengthen India’s charging infrastructure by leveraging each operator’s strong presence in the charging ecosystem. TPEM will actively support the installation of charging stations at locations frequented by Tata EV owners, leveraging the insights obtained from its fleet of more than 1,15 lakh Tata EVs on Indian roads. The goal is to have more than 10,000 charging stations in place by 2025.

Charge Zone, Glida (previously Fortum Charge & Drive India), Statiq and Zeon together have around 2,000 charging points across key cities in India’s evolving sustainable mobility landscape. According to an official statement, the partnership will deliver 10,000 additional charging points within 12 to 15 months.

In addition to expanding its charging infrastructure, TPEM will collaborate with Charge Zone, Glida, Statiq, and Zeon to explore the development of smart payment gateways through co-branded RFID cards. By taking part in this initiative, Tata Electric Vehicle users will be able to simplify their payment process. In addition, customers have access to each CPO’s loyalty program and a dedicated customer service number for assistance.

According to Mr. Balaje Rajan, the Chief Strategy Officer of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd. and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd., the adoption of electric vehicles is a national imperative for reducing urban pollution, and convenient charging infrastructure is imperative for accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles. To accelerate India’s journey towards e-mobility, Charge Zone, Glida, Statiq, and Zeon are collaborating to accelerate India’s charging ecosystem. By the end of FY25, 10,000+ additional charging points will be created in the country using TPEM’s EV usage insights combined with CPOS’ innovative charging solutions and entrepreneurial spirit.

This strategic partnership aligns with global case studies that highlight the importance of accessible charging infrastructure in driving the uptake of electric vehicles. Sources report that TPEM’s partnership with Tata Power has already installed over 4,900 public chargers across the country, and an open collaboration with BPCL will see 7,000 chargers installed next year. TPEM and Tata Motors have launched the EZ Charge Card, an RFID card that allows customers to start charging with just one tap.

Industry leaders have expressed their commitment to providing a seamless experience for EV users and contributing to the growth of sustainable mobility in India in response to the MoU, including Kartikey Hariyani of Charge Zone, Awadhesh Kumar Jha of Glida, Raghav Arora of Statiq, and Karthikeyan KP of Zeon Charging.

According to Charge Zone Founder and CEO Kartikey Hariyani, since electric mobility is experiencing a high growth phase, they have been collaborating with automotive OEMs to build a reliable high-speed charging infrastructure as a strategic partnership and collaborative approach. Through this collaboration, Tata Motors intends to provide seamless experiences to EV users across a variety of ranges of electric vehicles, such as Nexon.ev, Tigor.ev, as well as the upcoming models from its stable.

In the view of Awadhesh Kumar Jha, Executive Director, GLIDA, the collaboration between Glida and TPEM comes at an opportune time to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in India. As a result of the partnership, there is an opportunity to enhance further charging infrastructure at convenient customer touch points, expand reach on highways and city centers, and provide easy discovery & status of charging infrastructure on EV dashboards, thus putting the customer experience at the center of the partnership. Glida and TPEM hope to work together more closely to meet the needs of electric vehicle users and to provide charging services and related services at the highest level.

According to Raghav Arora, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Statiq, Statiq shares common values with TPEM, including a commitment to quality, sustainability, and customer satisfaction. It is a testament to our shared vision for the future of mobility that this partnership represents more than just a business relationship. Additionally, he added that their joint efforts are intended to redefine the electric vehicle landscape by introducing cutting-edge technologies and pioneering solutions that will impact the industry for decades to come.

Similarly, Karthikeyan KP, MD & CEO of Zeon Charging, provided his perspective on this collaboration. As he put it, Zeon Charging believes that it is not only important to have chargers, but also to have charging stations customers can depend on. This is a very exciting announcement for them as they are partnering with TPEM. He stated, “TPEM has led the nation’s charge for electric vehicles, thus making our existence relevant.” With our collaboration, we would be able to develop a charging ecosystem that is convenient, comprehensive, and relevant for electric vehicle owners.” In addition, he stated that their association would contribute to the establishment of a network that EV owners can depend on. Zeon can benefit greatly from the expertise that TPEM as a leading EV OEM can provide to help build a robust EV charging ecosystem through this partnership. In their role as leading operators of charge points, their insight and information regarding charging behaviour and patterns will prove invaluable to TPEM in improving its products and customer service. The transition to sustainable mobility in India is being accelerated through their partnership.
